And that is what happened. There was no formal meeting but Jeremy,
Ivan and I talked about date formats, picture strings etc.
https://github.com/w3c/csvw/issues/54 has links to the full chatlog
http://www.w3.org/2014/11/19-csvw-irc and a few notes from me. Ivan
and Jeremy may add more detail but had to run off to other meetings
straight away.
